Ipswich: Book to raise money in memory of Trudie

ipswich: A loving father has created a book based on walks he embarked upon with his daughter for more than 40 years.

As part of a tribute to Trudie Parsons, her father Stuart Ansell has created a book of walks in her memory.

Trudie lost her fight against breast cancer in 2009, and since then her family have ensured that her generous nature lives on through their fundriasing efforts. Mr Ansell said: “ I walked through the Shotley Peninsula with my daughter for a little more than 40 years.

“At 40, Trudie was diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately it was caught early, and after surgery and chemotherapy all looked well.

“Unfortunately her cancer was of the most aggressive type and it returned.”

Mr Ansell said that he was determined to continue raising money for Breakthrough Cancer Research.

The book, entitled Walks with my Daughter, comes complete with maps, drawn by Mr Ansell. All proceeds will be donated to the charity.
